⚠️ Attention: Music Producers and Engineers...
Stop Wasting HOURS Fiddling With Compressor Settings!
After more than 15 years of earning my living as a professional engineer, I'm revealing a NEW way to learn compression — it's the only step-by-step training program that will show you how to:
  • Instantly HEAR compression...
  • ​Know when to use it and...
  • ​Set the right parameters... FAST!
(And yes, I guarantee it works, even if you have NO experience!)

The price will be going up soon!
Fair warning: If you want to hear the same old compression advice you can find elsewhere online, it might be best for you to just skip this information altogether. If you’re willing to keep an open mind, keep reading...
Dear fellow music producer,

If you find yourself wasting HOURS fiddling with compressor settings…

Struggling to hear the subtle changes…

And constantly worried whether you’re using too much… or too little compression in your mixes…

I have good news.

Because I’m about to share one of the most important mixing breakthroughs I’ve ever released to the public.

You see, I learned compression the hard way. But you don’t have to…

Compression suddenly "clicked" for me, all because of a little-known listening hack...

It’s all about avoiding the inevitable "side effect" of compression that is PREVENTING you from actually hearing the parameter changes, through no fault of your own!

You may not even be aware it’s happening. And there’s nothing you can do to stop it from happening. It’s physics… 

You could be playing with those knobs for YEARS without ever learning how to hear the differences!

Imagine instead, being able to choose the right compressor for the sound you’re going for… and quickly dialing in the settings.

Now you’re not just saving a bunch of time, but people suddenly start telling you that your mixes sound more “polished.”

And you start cranking out KILLER mixes for yourself and your clients, faster than ever before.

No one talks about this.

But after 15+ years of earning my living as a professional engineer, I’ve finally had enough

For the first time ever, revealing my step-by-step compression workflow.

Including my Parameter Isolation approach that will not only allow you to overcome the "Volume Effect" that's preventing you from hearing the subtle changes you're making...

But also quickly “set and forget” compressor controls like threshold, attack, and release to get exactly the sound you want, every time
The biggest compression mistake is not what you’ve been told!
My name is Justin Colletti. I'm a professional audio engineer, I run SonicScoop, and I’ve helped over 1 million+ home studio musicians, producers, and engineers just like you take their productions to the next level.

But I’ve never revealed these little-known compression secrets…

Until now.
Justin Colletti in the mastering studio
Over the past 15+ years I've worked with, studied, or interviewed dozens of A-list mixers like Michael Brauer (John Mayer, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket), Manny Marroquin (Alicia Keys, John Legend, Kanye West, Imagine Dragons, Bruno Mars), Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, U2, Beck, Spoon, The Strokes), and more!
You see, in a recent survey, we asked folks how they use compression in their mixes, and the results were SHOCKING.

55% of people know how compressors work.. in theory.

But they don’t know when (or why) to use compression in their mixes, or will often waste HOURS trying to dial in the perfect settings!

Or worse… because they’re so afraid of damaging their mix, they might just skip it altogether.

You may have even been told that the biggest mistake when it comes to compression is over-compression…

And yeah, it can make a mix sound flatter than a pancake.

But the truth is... Almost nothing defines the sound of modern records more than the sound of compression.

In fact, the best engineers in the game often use copious amounts of it. And it’s why their mixes sound the way they do!

Now, I’ve already told you about one of the negative side effects of compression… namely what I call the “Volume Effect” and how the Parameter Isolation method I've developed will help you overcome it...

But that's just the first step.
Why you need compression in EVERY mix
Lots of beginners and even some advanced mixers don't really know when or why to use compression – but it's absolutely crucial for a polished and finished-sounding mix.

Some of the ways to use compressors beyond just "level control" include...
 Adding Excitement
Does your mix sound flat and lifeless? We can use compression to make it more sonically exciting and jump out at us more.
 "Phatter" Sound
Does your mix sound too bright and thin?  The right type of compression can make a sound or your entire mix sound fuller and fatter.
 Smoother Sound
Want to smooth out some resonances? Or settle a sound more into the background?  Compression can also help with how “glued together” your mix will sound.
 More Clarity
How well are you able to hear different instruments in your final mix? We can use compression to add more perceived level and grit if necessary.
Of course, none of this matters if you don't also have a way to avoid the "Volume Effect" that's actually preventing you from hearing these subtle changes that can make all the difference!

I really wish someone would have explained this to me much sooner, rather than just a bunch of tips and tricks I didn't know how to use... 

Which is why I’ve decided to finally reveal everything!

Compression Breakthroughs Box and Laptop
Finally, a new way to HEAR compression, control the dynamics, tone, and “glue” in your mix, and get the sound you want!
This brand-new course has been 10+ years in the making… but it will only take you a few hours to go through it.

Imagine mixing with compression without the FEAR or CONFUSION…

And cranking out killer mixes faster than you ever thought possible.

No more mindlessly turning compressor knobs without a clear reason for each of your moves…

No more over-compressed surprises when you listen to your mix outside of your studio…

And no more “playing it safe” by not using compression because you’re worried about “messing things up.”

I’ll show you exactly how to overcome the inevitable “Volume Effect” that has been preventing you from actually hearing compression through no fault of your own…

And you’ll discover how to finally use the positive “side effects” of compression to get the sound you want.

Even if you’re not a “professional” engineer.

Because it’s a completely new way to HEAR and MIX with compression….

…and because Compression Breakthroughs includes all the video training, practice modules, and session templates you need.

That’s right. I’ll take you from “how does a compressor work again?” to compression whiz in no time!
Here’s what you’ll learn inside
Compression Breakthroughs
Watch the trailer or read below!
  • Are you struggling to HEAR compression? Use my time-tested listening hack that makes subtle changes instantly apparent (even to an untrained ear)
  • There’s a vast array of compressor types out there — I’ll show you how to select the best type for what you’re trying to achieve
  • No B.S. unbiased advice on whether stocks plugins are as good as the more expensive ones (and which ones are worth your money)
  • My “Parameter Isolation” method that will finally allow you to hear and then “set and forget” compressor controls like threshold, attack, and release, and move on with your mix
  • How to set compressor controls to get the sound you want for every type of instrument including vocals, drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, piano, mix buses, and more…
  • How to work with compressor presets without feeling overwhelmed (and when NOT to use a preset!)
  • How to change parameters to add smoothness, glue, fatness… Or excitement, clarity, and presence in proper doses... And leave your buddies wondering, “how the heck did you do that?!?”
But that’s just the beginning.
Things start to get REALLY interesting when we start to listen to compressors together…
Early on in the course, you’ll learn to hear the difference that each and every control on the compressor makes.

Along with a unique approach to ear training that will help you recognize all the main styles of compression by ear.

I’ll even give you my shared settings for various instruments that you can simply copy.

And then use my “Set and Forget” technique to quickly fine-tune the settings for the exact type of sound you’re going for.

Of course, we’ll cover TONS of examples. And you can download the sessions to mix alongside me.

From there, I’ll help you master advanced compression techniques including parallel compression, multiband compression, “stacking” compressors, sidechain compression, mid-side, De-Essing, limiting, expanders, gates, and more.
Here’s exactly what you get when you join Compression Breakthroughs today…

Which brings me to one final question.

How much will it cost to get access?

Unlike anything else in your studio, the skills you will gain are IRREPLACEABLE.

But maybe you're still wondering...
Is the brand new Compression Breakthroughs right for you?
Now, since this is a new course, I understand you may have questions. Let me try to answer them here...

"What if I'm not a professional audio engineer?"

Great. You don’t need to be. We’ll take you from “what the heck does a compressor do again?”… to compression “whiz” faster than you can imagine. And we’ll break through every obstacle together along the way.

"What if I'm too busy with my day job and barely have a free hour in my day?"

I hear you… I’m a busy dad and a full-time engineer. This is why one of my main goals with this course is to help you SAVE time by eliminating all the guesswork. On top of that, you get LIFETIME access. So you can go through the training whenever it fits your schedule. You got this!

"What if I already joined one of your other courses? Is Compression Breakthroughs still worth it for me?"

Absolutely. You might get even more value out of this course. While Mixing Breakthroughs gives you an overarching mixing process, this compression deep-dive goes much deeper into HOW to use all the specific compression techniques to take your mix to the next level.
Here's what it comes down to...
I’ve had enough of seeing people question their talent, waste precious time, and end up frustrated through no fault of their own!

So, if you’re still on the fence… Remember that you could be playing with those compressor knobs for YEARS without ever making any real progress.

Or instead, simply give this new course a shot… 

Worst case, you'll discover some cool new compression techniques you may have never heard of – and you won't pay a penny thanks to our money-back guarantee.

Best case? It will transform your mixes forever and save you countless hours in the process.

The question is, what's going to be easier for you?

I’ll leave the decision to you.

And if you decide to join, I can't wait to welcome you inside!

Justin Colletti
